What the hell is David Lemieux waiting for. Release this show as a pick, road trip, Dave pick or LOST LEMIEUX's. This night was magical. What a dark star, what a monster collection, what a sound. I'm a 73 fanatic and this show was awesome. I am sure this will be released, but please Dave crank it out sooner than later. I'm getting old fast and need more 73.
Subject: East coast 73'
Gr8 show from new england.set 2 is impressive with jerry getting hotter and hotter til the show closing jam that is darkstar>eyes>playin'.a must listen.
Subject: another classic
Late second set with WRS sketch, Dark Star, Eyes, and Playin'? Yes Please!
Also, during this fantastic period I'm reminded of why Keith was definitely such a huge contributor to their golden era sound. Fantastic interplay between him and the guitars.
No doubt that '73 was a fine, fine vintage.

All you need to do is to either run them through an audio converter like Free Audio Converter and tag them there. http://download.cnet.com/Free-Audio-Converter/3000-2140_4-10893961.html
You can load them into Windows Media Player and tag them there, but I found the audio conversion to work better. I have a Creative Zen player and it's very picky about playing things in order if they are not tagged correctly and even then it's sometimes a problem.

the release of the complete europe '72 has roused me from my slumber. please allow me to ramble on here since this is my first posting and i'm filled with deep memories. and please feel free to correct me if i misremember. if you were there ratings are silly. hopefully you live long enough to realize how fortunate you are/were. this was my 21st birthday, nice of the dead to play in my comfort zone that night (i was going to providence college at the time), karmic reinforcement. remember hanging around the spfld civic center all afternoon on a beautiful early spring day. remember going on a beer run, perhaps my first experience with bass ale. general admission in those days, i remember being carried through the front doors with my feet off the ground - scary, and always linked in my mind with the who crush in cinci '79. also remember rushing into general admission boston garden during wall of sound days trying to get close. as far as set list/music is concerned, i must admit to a foggy memory. the EVENT was the thing! by the time the music started , the memory banks were compromised by outside agents. do remember this was my first dark star i believe( my 1st show being providence arena 4/21/71), and i remember being surprised that they would play it, at the time we believed it to be a song we would only hear on live dead. other than that i will only say how great it felt to be a part of the tribe that night. 5 stars for every show i saw until the 90's. so much for my critical credibility. i'd be more than happy to engage in a dialogue about my experiences with the boys at this site, rather than limit us all to solitary erudition. help me remember or just tell me to shut up. thanks y'all.

What an incredible year for the Dead. You can't go wrong with anything from '73. An abundance of 'good time' Dead at this particular show and the jams don't start til near the end of the show with that classic WR Suite Prelude ->Dark Star ->Eyes ->Playing. Some great exploratory jams at especially that DS which goes waaaay out into space. As others have mentioned, the Weather Report is nothing more than a musical snippet at this point - I wonder if Bobby even knew what he was going to do with it yet. I love the UJB jam between China and Rider that they were doing during this period.
Thanks for posting this amazing sb!
Another keeper. I have others I like better from '73 but that doesn't mean there is anything wrong with this. Excellent sound quality. Thanks Charlie.
while i find this show as a whole to be unexceptional (hence 4 stars) Weather Report Prelude thru PITB i would consider required listening for all. The "naked" wrs prelude is pretty interesting, but it's the Eyes and especially Dark Star that REALLY do it. DS is a top version of the year, along with 6/10, 11/11, and 12/6. and the Eyes is extremely tight and well played for such an early version, not to mention the Playin' is no dullard either.
Subject: Stream it Now
ANotehr gem from the underrated Sprting '73 east coast tour. COuple dieffernt themes in Dark Star, Garcia is on his game this night.
Check out the change around the 10:20-22 mark of Dark Start, thought I heard a hint of round a bout midnight in there somewhere. Maybe I was just tired. Taking that into Eyes is always hoit in '73, and the Playin jam scorches. I hioghly recommend streaming this show.
Subject: There's music behind the music
Thank you, Charlie - Warren - Miller.
Thank you for mixin a great powder run thru both sets -- letting us hear where on stage everyone made their music that night...
With plenty of base.
Vocals are very crisp...
they were so on.
(I love it when Jerr takes over Bobby tunes he's bored w/...
I love it more when JG is a smoooth mfkr, like tonight.)
That 2nd set ender is just great!
Awesome stuff, guys
Subject: TOP SHELF DEAD
The Dark Star->Eyes->Playin' is 60 minutes of the finest GD you can wrap your ears around.Truly astonishing music,I don't think I have ever heard Jerry and Weir lock in together for as an extended period of time,as they did in this Playin'.From about 4 minutes in through to the end,it's like one big twisted guitar,a good deal of the time Weir's rhythm licks are like leads that Jerry is playing off.
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live" March 28, 1973 at the Springfield Civic Center Arena, Springfield MA, U.S.A.
Charlie Miller has done it again! Thank you Mr. Miller, you make the world a better place to live in.
This show has a certain quality of "beauty" to it. It's a masterful work of art and magic.
I highly recommend adding this show to your 1973 GRATEFUL DEAD collection right now.
5 Stars for the mix
5 Stars for the recording
5 Stars for the performance
5 Stars for Mr. Charlie Miller's excellent taste in GRATEFUL DEAD shows.
The soundguys work out the bugs in the mix during the first song, like they did in every GRATEFUL DEAD show in history. After that, the mix is fine except for a minute in CCS.
30 Songs performed effortlessly and flawlessly before a very, very, very lucky Springfield Massachusetts audience. This is another "Must Have" show for collectors of 1973 GRATEFUL DEAD.
Mr. Miller's taste for GRATEFUL DEAD shows is impeccable.
Here's a 32 minute "Dark Star" into a 12 minute and 56 second long "Eyes of the World" into a 15 minute and 56 second long "Playin' In the Band". It's an audio masterpiece. Sounds like the GRATEFUL DEAD let their hair down this show, figuratively speaking of course.
Get it while you can, get it while it's free, get it now or you will surely be very, very sorry.
For users of Windows XP the Internet Archive recommends RealPlayer for streaming and/or downloading.
Eat, Drink, be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the Love.
PS: Keep up the good work Mr. Miller, we are counting on you to keep the music and the magic alive.
THE DEAD LIVE!

I had the end of this second set on tape years ago and the DS>Eyes>playing is very deep and more premeval than jazzy. That is the big difference to the start of this amazing year. The band was still more rockabilly psychedelic and on this night you get 30 songs, 9 of them new ones and a confident and rewarding night of music. The opening is very strong and with HC Sunshine you get a taste of that deep spacey playing that is a hallmark fo this year, but you also get a full rainbow of songs and styles. The band plays the new songs better than you would think. Wave That Flag may be the only one where you knew there would be changes, too many lyrics although very appropiate for the times, but the US blues medody is there. TLEO through the end of the set is excellent.Jerry does the we will be right back folks honors. Set two starts with more up beat quick songs that squeak and stream along, when thay play Stella Blue you can already hear how this will be a classic. The WRS,in it's infancy, has no lyrics and they go right into DS. This one is long and full of feedback and mystic turnings that are more spiritual and assuring rather than the hypnotic wailing of a typical '72 DS. The transition into Eyes is wonderful and what a surprise for those that attended, something completly new sounding. It is a rawer version that has all the changes and emotoinal intensities of versions from this year. To then go into Playing in the Band, a full complete Playing, with more wild playing and a short trip around the cosmos is further proof, that indeed they were Playing in the Band. A cranking JBG sends you on your way.
...is the right description. A simply amazing show, with amazing sound, from my personal favorite year. Love it!
Subject: This is for your Dr. Flashback
This show is now in pristine condition thanks to Charlie Miller. Dr. Flashback, stream this show, order a pizza, smoke a little of the sticky-icky (or smoke a lot of it) and enjoy the entire show, especially the second set hour long jam.
